Well, like I said before - if the wholesale cost remains the same as the current cost of the 688, the group buy price will be $200, give or take.

New 688 $200 +/-.
Shipping $15 +/-.

Not having to hear your wife/mother/outlaws complain 'cause they can't figure out how to turn everything on or off or can't get sound to match picture? Priceless!

When you can snatch this High Definition pebble from my hand, then it is time for you to leave this place, Grasshopper.

Do you mean RF/IR?

RF=Radio Frequency
IR=Infra-Red

IR remotes are line of sight, if there's something directly between the remote and the receiver, it won't work. RF sends out a broadcast that can go around obstacles, but is prone to interference. Most electronics use IR remotes.

My A/V receiver uses RF only. Also my 5200 receiver uses it if it is in another room.

Any word yet on availability? A lot of sites are taking pre-orders now... some for under $200 too! (check froogle) I really don't know how they can sell it that cheap. To be honest, I'm not even sure if I trust 'em.

DigitalBuys seems like a safe bet though. They sell on eBay too and have a really clean (if not perfect) record.

I can take a pre-order from you for the 1st X-Wing fighter if you'd like...only $10,000, too!

Unfortunately, there's still no listing for the 880 with the distributor. As soon as there is, I'll hit up the bid desk for a price based on the quantities we're looking at here.
